----------------------------------------------------------------
The Audience recording was used as the timing reference and for the most part the soundboard recording ran slightly fast (.5 seconds per minute). However, Playin In The Band which "has no Cassette gen" more closely matched the audience recording and is unfortunate that more of it doesn't circulate. A patched version of the sbd already circulates (shnid=22801) but as there were multiple fixes to the audience recording, a fixed version of it will be available soon along with a dts and dvd-va.

Subject: Cannot Disagree
Cannot disagree too much with the former reviewers, other than I thot Money Money was a veritable hoot.

All in all this show is well-captured on the going in and the coming out.

Subject: transformational
I was in a carload of 15 yr. olds from Bellevue, met by old, generous hippies who didn't notice when the hall doors opened.

The wall of sound looked like a giant's stereo system at one end of his living room, perfectly in scale.

At first my friend rankled at country riffs, yelling "we paid $4.50 for this shit?"... until SCARLET snuck out for a jam; WRS had us smelling a forest; we still havn't come down from that PLAYIN'.

My country skeptic friend muttered "o my god" & wandered onto the floor, arms limp at his sides, shunning non-dead music for the next 10 years.

I came home, swept aside life as it was before, and pulled out my sax. Since that day I've devoted my time only to music, and I'm still teaching kids instruments by day & playin' at night.

Now, the review! This show still has the same, undiluted power it did that night (and w/o the pane!). Tempos: fast songs are faster, slow songs slower. Energy: Jerry's opening doodles; Billy's cymbal splashes; the band echoing one another-- it just keeps building.

My only complaint about the recording: there was practially NO bass on the soundboard. My memory from that night was of a stereo panned bass sound rolling up & down the wall of sound. So I'll give it 4 stars for this technical shortcoming.

Especially after combing the archives, I'm convinced 5-21-74 is among the highest moments in Dead-ness, and thank the goddess I was there. I'd have grown into a lesser being had I done something else that night!

Great matrix gives this show a pulse. You can feel the good vibes flow over the crowd. First time I've heard China after WRS. I've never been a fan of WRS but China Doll is a nice bookend for the tune. Everyone is on and the playing is pretty good too. Money Money is the only tune I could have done without. Overall good times and good tunes.

Peace
Gagas

Subject: Great matrix, Mr. Tobin
Congrats to Mr. Tobin for delivering a stunning matrix. The synchronization is masterful; you don't get that echo/reverb thing that's often noticable on matrix efforts. I only wish the Aud source was slightly louder (but I'm an aud guy :)

The show isn't shabby either, definitely worth hearing!

Subject: Can it get better? Sure as hell can
Always loved this show. The Playin' is just a seething beast of percussive perfection. I won't add on to the show reveiws as they have well covered the actual peformance, I'll just add on about the quality of this work here. Some MATRIX mixes don't always strike me as an overall improvement to previously available sources. This is NOT one of those cases. The balance between the AUD and SBD sources is spot on, with the AUD serving as the perfect back up to the SBD, providing just enough to really fill out the sound without overpowering. Great job on this one, thanks for the work.
